How God rewards a female suicide bomber.

Quote:
A female suicide bomber detonated a vest filled with explosives at a university in Baghdad Sunday, killing more than 40 people. If male martyrs can expect to find 72 virgin maidens in paradise when they die, what rewards can female suicide bombers expect?

Well so much for another religions credibility. Same old same old hatred of women for their weaknes- emotion.

Quote:
Women may not get these particular perks, but religious commentaries argue that paradise will make them beautiful, happy, and without jealousy. The fact that they fasted and worshipped Allah during their earthly lives will also make them superior to the virgins, who only exist in heaven. Some modern clerics argue that in heaven, husbands never grow bored of their wives, even with so many huris around. That may explain why some would-be female suicide bombers have spoken of becoming "chief of the 72 virgins, the fairest of the fair."
Yes, once again women are seen as flawed emotionally and that they must be "FIXED" within a male context!!!!

Imagine your intended purpose as being to be a man's slave. What's wrong IS religion! Organized into hate groups around the world these false realities are dominating our societies. When will patriarchy reach its finality? When religions have been purged from our psyche and the true spiritualty of humanity is implanted. We don't need to pretend that gods aren't male any more. Just look at the world and see who is the real second class citizen in every country. Gods model themselves in MAN's image, because that is what was intended. Man made this system on purpose- to dominate and excuse his wars and killing incessantly.

Time to wake up and let go of your illusions about reality. The gods don't care about your petty wars and murders. This is a male concern and keeping it intact this way is the only story people want to obey. The believers are sleepwalking and dreaming to the end of the earth. It's war all right. War against intelligence and it's acquisition. As long as women are abused in this world, this world suicide for what we believe will continue. And religion is at the root of all conflict! One greedy god demands its followers destroy all other demands from any other greedy gods, just as their system demands the same.

When true spiritual people take over this world and ban dogma, then we will grow as the human family, and not until then. I'm afraid that belief in higher gods dooms the world to infancy as long as it persists. Not until we come to understand we are the gods we have been hoping and looking for will we see an end to these nightmares and horrors.
